Common Errors

Field object_set is not optional

Field object_set is not optional

This error may occur when global CPI configuration references:

  • cluster (via clusters key) that cannot be found in the datacenter
  • stemcell that cannot be found in the templates folder

Missing Properties Exception

...should have the following properties: ["info.progress", "info.state", "info.result", "info.error"] (VSphereCloud::CloudSearcher::MissingPropertiesException), but they were missing these: #<Set: {"info.state"}>

Add System.View on vCenter server level so that persistent disks can be moved between the datastores.

Field counter_id is not optional

Field counter_id is not optional
...lib/cloud/vsphere/client.rb:270:in `fetch_perf_metric_names'

The CPI requires access to performance metrics from ESXi hosts. This error may be returned if one of the hosts in the cluster is not returning these metrics (e.g. memory.usage.average). Possible solution is to restart management agents on the hosts.

Failed to add disk

Failed to add disk scsi0:2.

This error typically occurs when persistent disk is being attached to a second VM while it is attached to another VM. That may happen when first VM was not properly deleted and BOSH is no longer aware of its existence.

Could not acquire HTTP NFC lease

Could not acquire HTTP NFC lease, message is: 'A specified parameter was not correct.' fault cause is: '', fault message is: [], dynamic type is '', dynamic property is []'

The vCenter docs show that the value should be preset rather than default inside the OVF file. Switching powerOpInfo.* properties resolved the problem.
